DALC NOW DELAYS BOGUS CAM/OXIM CERTIFICATES and TRANSCRIPTS

DALC EDUCATION would normally have handed the students their results by now. Oborah created the online system because he wanted the students to believe that the marking would be done online and would therefore take shorter. Notwithstanding the claim of the bogus education Institution, students expect DALC to declare the results of various courses run by it within by now since projects were submitted in January.

Oborah probably did not expect a blog with over 1000 viewers weekly and growing on his education con to wash his innards so badly. It seems his DALC calendar has been messed with and his ulcers worsened.

As per the promises by DALC, the result of any examination project should be out in 30 days but this particular result has taken much longer.. But students waiting for their result even months after taking examination is not an familiar sight.If DALC was a genuine institution they would take up arms, go to the ministry of education but they cant and they won't.

DALC students have been waiting months and certificates have not been issued this year. We are eagerly awaiting those to see if the certificates will have new watermarks and security feautures. Oborah has been hit hard and low by the exposure on this blog and my take is:

  • He has to do all the work himself since he can't trust anyone
  • He has had so much to do to convince staff who are leaving to stay
  • He is spending a lot of time in the loo shitting his a** when we post all this damning info
  • He has no time as he is the jack of all trade
  • He wants to delay the certs to prove they come from the UK
  • He is looking for a backdated DHL receipt to prove that the results came from UK
  • He is waiting for people to fall for his newest trick (that certificates don't matter) so he can send you online certificates.
  • He hopes you forget and the whole thing goes away.

One DALC student told us that the morale for those certificates is low but students want to grab them and scatter before employers are made fully aware how dubious the certificates are. “All my requests for the results have not been answered as DALC has no staff who knows what is going on’’. she said from the Westlands campus.

DALC did not reply any email in that regard.

  • Bogus university scam uncovered
    Investigation
    By Nigel Morris
    BBC London Investigations Producer

    Professor Wooller and Professor Sandhu
    Prof Sandhu and Prof Wooller shake hands
    An international education scam that targets foreign students who come to study in the capital has been exposed by a BBC London investigation.

    The bogus Irish International University (IIU), which offers sub-standard and worthless degrees, has been allowed to flourish in the UK - virtually unchecked by the government - for the last seven years.

    Although the organisation is unaccredited, hundreds of students have been given educational visas to enter Britain and take its exams at private colleges in London.

    The IIU, which has 5,000 students worldwide and thousands of graduates, maintains the illusion of a valid education through its elaborate but highly misleading website.

    This illusion is enhanced by the university's continued use of Oxford and Cambridge facilities to stage its award ceremonies.

    After each event photographs appear on the IIU website showing happy students receiving awards at the UK's best seats of learning.

    Our investigation took us from London to Dublin, Oxford and finally Monte Carlo in search of those behind the IIU.

    A BBC journalist and an actor posing as fake academic were invited to the IIU's award ceremony which, surprisingly, was held at the Divinity School, next to the Bodleian Library, in the very heart of Oxford University.

    The ceremony was due to go ahead at Cambridge, but after BBC London alerted the university authorities the event was cancelled. That did not stop the IIU switching venues to Oxford at the last minute.

    Dublin campus?

    In Oxford, our journalist and actor secretly filmed the award ceremony and recorded meetings with university boss and Executive President Professor Hardeep Singh Sandhu, a Malaysian businessman and faculty member Dr Edwin Varo.

    Dr Varo, told us that the IIU was not bogus and was registered in Ireland and that it had applied to the government and had been given approval to use the word university.

    In Dublin, Sean O'Foghlu, Chief Executive of the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland, told BBC London: "To use the word university in a title it needs approval from our Department of Education and Science - no such approval has been given by our department."

    The university website clearly stated that the university had a campus in Dublin. We visited the address given by the IIU on its website - there was no campus, just a mailbox.


    When you look at the website, it's a figment of someone's imagination.
    Professor Jeffrey Wooller

    The website also claimed that the IIU's educational programmes were accredited and quality controlled by the impressive sounding QAC-UK Ltd - the Quality Assurance Commission, based in North London.

    During secretly filmed meetings, Professor Sandhu told our undercover team that the QAC was an "independent body" that maintained the quality of education in the UK and elsewhere.

    Faculty member, Dr Varo explained that the QAC staff: "Focus more on your curriculum - on your teaching; focus on your evaluation - they focus on your faculty - who are your faculty - what amount of real teaching takes place."

    The QAC website listed an impressive roll-call of staff including the QAC Commissioner General and an Acting Commissioner General.

    Our reporter visited the QAC and instead of finding a commissioner general we found four telephonists fielding calls for countless companies at yet another virtual office.

    A further check at Companies House revealed that far from the being "independent" the QAC is in fact owned by university boss Professor Dr Sandhu.


    The UK has some of the toughest regulations in the world governing the award of higher education qualifications.
    Bill Rammell
    Higher Education Minister

    Bona fide academic, Professor Geoffrey Alderman, gave evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee on the subject of bogus institutions.

    He told us: "Some of these colleges will say, 'sure we're accredited', but when you say 'by whom?', they name an accrediting institution which in fact they themselves own."

    University boss Professor Sandhu, who sits on the governing council is a Doctor of Letters, a doctorate awarded by another unaccredited university based in the Caribbean.

    His professorship is "honorary", awarded by a European association set up to give out professorships.

    On the website he also called himself "Sir H Sandhu" but his knighthood was not bestowed on him by the Queen.

    One person missing from the Oxford award ceremony was the university's Honorary Chancellor, His Excellency Baron Knowth - real name Professor Jeffrey Wooller - a successful chartered accountant from London.

    Professor Wooller, a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, owns a £1.2m townhouse in Kensington but spends most of his time living as a tax exile in Monte Carlo.

    Our actor, again posing as a fake academic, arranged to meet Professor Wooller, at a hotel in Monaco. We secretly filmed this meeting.

    'Dreamt up'

    He told our fake academic that the IIU was not "recognised anywhere".

    He admitted to our actor that the website was an illusion: "When you look at the website, it's a figment of someone's imagination. Someone's dreamt up what a university should look like, and that's what's on the website."

    Professor Wooller told us that students paid a lot of money to attend the award ceremonies, adding: "If you can mention Oxford, Cambridge then the whole world thinks that it must be a good university."

    He then said of the university's operation: "The whole thing's dodgy." He even said that the IIU's governing council, of which he and Professor Sandhu are both members, did not exist.

    A BBC London reporter then confronted Professor Wooller:

    Reporter: You said the whole thing is dodgy.

    Mr Wooller: It is dodgy!

    Reporter: Oh so you admit it's dodgy?

    Mr Wooller: Of course it's dodgy.

    He also told our reporter that he had been given his professorship by the IIU and that he had bought his "Baron" title.

    Professor Wooller refused to quit as honorary chancellor stating that most IIU students were happy and that the university was good value for money.

    Professor John Arnold of Loughborough University has seen coursework from an IIU graduate.

    He said: "Students are paying for this, what I would regard as worthless and bogus qualifications. I would say buyer beware from the point of view of students.

    "You know I really think that they'll probably be getting qualifications which are unlikely to be taken seriously at least in Western Europe."

    'Banned'

    Following BBC London's investigation the IIU will now no longer be allowed to use Oxford and Cambridge's facilities to stage their award ceremonies.

    Oxford University issued a statement stating that they would not be renting its facilities to the Irish International University in the future.

    The IIU website survives but since our investigation it has undergone a radical overhaul.

    The reference to a Dublin campus has been removed, the QAC is "no longer involved with the Irish International University" and its logo no longer appears on the website.

    Professor Sandhu told BBC London that the university will not renew its affiliations with any private colleges in London.

    The government is promising that by 2009 all colleges wishing to bring overseas applicants into the country will need to be accredited.

    Higher Education Minister Bill Rammell said: "Our universities are rightly regarded as world class and any attempt by bogus institutions or conmen to tarnish this hard won reputation will not be tolerated.

    "The UK has some of the toughest regulations in the world governing the award of higher education qualifications. The vast majority of private colleges in London operate lawfully and provide a high-quality service to their students.

    "We are working very hard on behalf of students to ensure that all private institutions meet strict quality standards.

    "Where we are not satisfied that this is the case with a particular college, we will not hesitate to investigate and if necessary, close it down.

    "I would encourage all new students to carefully check the credentials of the college they wish to enrol at and if they have any concerns, contact their local trading standards team."

    The full investigation can be seen in two parts on BBC London News at 6.30 pm on Monday 7 January and Tuesday 8 January.

  • IIU "Legitimize it's Certificate" on Web page as below:

    All legitimate university documents can be legalised by government agencies. Graduates may request for Certificate of Attestation, authenticated by Ministry of Foreign Affairs and legalised by an EU Embassy.

    Elsewhere in their web page:

    ACCREDITATION AND RECOGNITION

    The Irish International University was established at the dawn of the millennium under a Royal decree in Belgium as an open university in the European Union. The Royal decree is recognised by the Ministry of Justice of Belgium.

    The Establishment Order

    The Irish International University was granted institutional accreditation by the Principality of Serborga and operates as a private higher education institution within the European Union.

    Accreditation Certificate

    In 2004, the Belgium government introduced the legal possibility for a private non-state recognised higher education institution located in Belgium to award recognised Bachelor and or Master degrees. Therefore the Irish International University made an application for registration in 2005.

    Belgium Government- Application for Recognition

    Belgium Government- Application for Registration - PhD

    Belgium Government- Application for Registration- MPhil
    The Irish International University at the moment does not offer any bachelor or master degrees in Belgium. It offers joint doctorate degrees by research in Belgium which does not require official government accreditation. Furthermore, the Irish International University has been classified as a foreign provider of higher education in Belgium due to the Irish orgin.

    The Irish Origin

    The legal entity of the Irish International University is incorporated in Ireland.

    The institution was originally established as a distance learning educational facility in January 1995 in Ireland from which it derived its Irish name. This institution was officially incorporated in March 2000 in Ireland (as from 1995 to 2000, it was unincorporated, however registered under the founder’s name) and therefore did not require approval from the Irish Minister of Education to officially register the name in Ireland.

    The Universities Act 1997 required the approval of the Minister for Education and Science to use of the term university in respect of new educational establishment, it does not apply to educational institution or facility established before 30th day of July 1996, and in compliance with section 52, in which case it may continue to be so described.

    Under the Irish laws, there is no provision for state recognition for any private higher education institutions in Ireland. Therefore the issue of the Department of Education and Science recognition for a private higher education institution does not otherwise arise in Ireland.

    Letter from National Qualifications Authority of Ireland

    The Irish International University was founded as a non-campus based university and does not offer any of its own programmes in Ireland. Therefore the issue of accreditation of programmes in Ireland does not otherwise arise. The Irish International University independent non-campus status is confirmed the Minister of Education and Science.

    Nevertheless, the Irish International University has applied to be a hybrid campus based institution in Ireland and have the programmes place on the Internationalism Register for recognition to employment in Ireland.

    Click here to view the Letter from the Department of Education and Science

    ACCREDITATION OF PROGRAMMES

    In Ireland, unlike in other European countries, the accreditation system operates on a voluntary basis. Private institutions may seek national accreditation of the programmes. In Ireland, opting for national accreditation of programmes denotes that the awards will be granted by the Higher Education Authority of Ireland and included in the National Qualifications of Ireland. Therefore, the Irish International University is classified as a private non-state recognized higher education institution in Ireland.

    Letter from the National Qualification Authority of Ireland- Status in Ireland

    Nevertheless, the Irish International University has applied to seek accreditation for recognition of its awards for some of its programmes in Ireland.

    Letter from the Higher Education Authority of Ireland.

    The Irish International University has discharged the media allegation as defamation. The cases for defamation have been filed in the High Court.

    RECOGNITION

    The international degrees and postgraduate degrees of the Irish International University have been validated by a number of governments overseas. Validation of degrees by overseas government denotes international recognition of the qualifications of the Irish International University.

    Letter from the Government of the Cook Islands

    Letter from Ministry of Higher Education Peru

    Ministerio de Educación Nacional

    The international degrees and postgraduate degrees of Irish International University are offered under the credit accumulation and transfer scheme. The credits are accumulated from the professional diplomas ranging from advanced and postgraduates levels aligned towards the international degrees and postgraduate degrees.

    April 6, 2009 at 6:32 PM

  • Here is a list i got from wikipedia of all unaccredited universities.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unaccredited_institutions_of_higher_learning#cite_note-Oregon-0
    Yes IUU is also there, plus Dublin University which METEC college on Aga Khan walk claims accreditation to.

    April 7, 2009 at 12:18 PM

  • I noted that Dublin Metropolitan university is claiming to be accredited in some island yet it claims irish address. People should seriously look at the issues of accreditation. Otherwise, some Kenyans will soon be studying at some Harvard Association of management that is registered in Bermuda whose office is in Mongolia. I am not a DALC student but from my internet research I can see clearly that DALC is practically conning people. Perhaps they could show pictures of their CAMBRIDGE and OXFORD associate offices prove physical existence. Like Anglo leasing, students are getting DIPLOMAs from institutions that do not exist.

    April 7, 2009 at 6:18 PM

  • Can any help me to prove Dublin Metropolitan University is fake?

    August 13, 2009 at 3:03 PM

  • it is >> you already know it is but you probably need more evidence. we will provide the links soon. Watch this space.
